*ATTENTION* Due to the outbreak of Corona Virus restrictions are applied: please read carefully up-to-date information provided by GESIS.The workshop helps researchers to ensure that their research data is usable within the project and can be safely made available to others - both for the purpose of research replication and for reuse in new contexts. Ideally, these tasks are implemented in the research process without major extra efforts for researchers. For this purpose, the workshop focuses on legal issues of data collection and sharing, on basic concepts of data cleaning and data documentation, on the organisation of research data within the research project of as well as on sharing the data beyond the research project of origin.
